I have to agree with all the positive reviews for Bill's. My wife and I had lunch there last week and found everything excellent, Usually, my wife, who is an excellent cook, will find some fault with any restaurant we go to. But not Bill's. The atmosphere, food and service were all excellent. We plan on returning to Bill's the... More

Our kids love when we say we are going to celebrate a special event and eat at Bills. They are so good about accommodating a large group at odd times and having appetizers ready and waiting! We were eating on a tight schedule and they worked with us without loss of the same great quality of food. Thanks Bill and... More

We made a lunch reservation for a 25th year work anniversary. I had not been to Bill's before and was pleasantly surprised at the look of the restaurant, it was very "tastefully" decorated, sort of minimalistic, clean lines. I had a combo meal of grouper cheeks and fresh salmon patty. The salmon was sauteed not deep fried but it had... More

Walking distance from Owensboro riverfront downtown. Restaurant next to a performing theatre. Inviting black decorated storefront. Very interesting unexpected fusion of American with Asian sauces. Calamari with chili is crisp but sweet. Side salad with dinner is good choice. Rainbow trout pan seared with almond slices and potato is excellent.

Business lunch here. A good, but simple, menu with offerings for all tastes. Service was great and with a personal touch. Super clean dining area, has a nostalgic feel to it. This could just as easily be the 60's era Owensboro rather than 2014. Bill's is highly recommended by the local residents.

Quaint, small, nicely decorated little restaurant next to the Theater Workshop venue. We had lunch on a weekday and really enjoyed the cous cous chicken salad and stuffed tomato with tuna. The dill dressing is a good choice. Great service and lots if interesting variety on the menu for this town. Looking forward to returning on a weekend evening for... More

Nice atmosphere but tasted like canned food and pre-packaged lasagna. Came out luke warm, and was expensive considering. I do advocate supporting local merchants, but I just can't in good conscience give a good review.

The ambiance was mediocre, almost cafeteria feeling. the food was "ok" nothing to brag about, but not awful. all in all, not a bad place, just care for it enough to return.

This is a nice privately owned restaurant that is probably overlooked by most local residents in a town that is overpopulated with chain restaurants. I am a local resident who just recently discoverd Bills'. The menu has an enticing variety of entrees from seafood to steak reasonably priced.Wine list is limited but decent. Recently dined there with 5 family members... More

The standards on the menu are always good - but go for the specials...they really are special...not pantry sweepings. If you luck into being there for Bill's skate wings or spinach salad with fried chicken livers, you'll be very happy.
